A Chinese film festival has pulled the award-winning gay romance “Call Me By Your Name” from its program, the movie’s distributor said Monday, reflecting China’s inconsistent relationship with gay themes in the creative arts.

The movie, which won a screenplay Oscar this month, was withdrawn from the Beijing International Film Festival set for April, Sony Pictures Entertainment said, declining to comment on the reason.
